LEDHAM found Jawwaal too good at Lingfield on his reappearance but finished clear of the rest and the winner has since gone in again. That looks good enough form to land this. Fascinator made a promising start when runner-up at Newcastle in November and Sir Commander should be sharper for a recent comeback at Goodwood but Documenting hasn’t raced since placed in France in 2015 and debuts for new connections. Act Of Bravery and Giovanni Acuto make most appeal of the newcomers.
